Description

you can play back a recording and you get a URL of the form

http://tvh.example.com:9981/dvrfile/527144416bf8931a06e31660d14a2288?ticket=1b6ec94aa229db9cb9520faeaa961070bcd78da6

if you play a live stream you can use persistent auth with a URL like this:

http://tvh.example.com:9981/stream/channel/e444f580f8fe9a2df82e9b0225ddee88?AUTH=abcdefhhvdddddddddddddddddds

but you can't play a recording using the persistent auth, i.e. this doesn't work:

http://tvh.example.com:9981/dvrfile/527144416bf8931a06e31660d14a2288?AUTH=abcdefhhvdddddddddddddddddds

this is with 4.3-1855~gd453f5b~xenial
I can't choose that version on this bug report form

History

#1

Updated by Paul M almost 2 years ago

I have now upgraded to ubuntu bionic and as expected the problem persists with 4.3-1855~gd453f5bef~bionic

#2

Updated by Paul M 2 months ago

still not fixed in 4.3-1967~geb59284b8~bionic

#3

Updated by Flole Systems 2 months ago

It's not marked as fixed so don't expect it to be fixed.

Updated by Paul M 2 months ago

sorry, to be clear, I didn't expect or demand it to be fixed, I just hoped it might have been as part of some other bug fix.

I've forked it on github and had a look at the code, I've not written any C for a long time, but it looks as if it's intended that PAUTH should work.

However, I stumbled on a work-round:

which might or might not be a bug.
